Among the more interesting buildings are those maintained by the Tucson Museum of Art and located on the block surrounding the museum. These restored homes date from 1850 to 1907, and are all built on the former site of the Tucson presidio. A map and brochures are available at the museum's front desk, and October through April, guided tours of the historic block and Corbett House are available (free with museum admission).

Art in the Open Air -- Although it isn't very big, the Jewish Community Center Sculpture Park, 3800 E. River Rd. (tel. 520/299-3000; www.tucsonjcc.org/arts/sculpture-garden), manages to exhibit some excellent sculptures and is well worth wandering through. Because it is just off the Rillito River Park path, you can combine a visit to the sculpture park with a walk or bike ride along the dry river bed. You'll find the community center at the north end of North Dodge Boulevard.
